[Verse]

Em  D  Em  A
She is benediction
Em  D   Em        A
She is addicted to he

Em       D        Em           A

Em  D       Em       A
I spin so ceaselessly
Em         D       Em     A    Em D Em A
Could it be he's taking over me

G             A
I'm dancing barefoot
C            D
Headed for a spin
Em                 A
Some strange music drags me in
C                D             Em
Makes me come on like some heroine

[Second Solo]


[Outro]

Em   D     Em        A
   Oh God I feel for you

Em   D     Em        A
   Oh God I feel for you
  The plot of our life sweats in the 
dark like a face

Em   D     Em        A
   Oh God I feel for you
  The mystery of childbirth, of 
childhood itself

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
  Grave visitations. What is it that 
calls to us?

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
   Why must we pray screaming?
   Why must not death be redefined?

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
   We shut our eyes

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
   we stretch out our arms

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
  And whirl on a pane of glass. An 
afixiation

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
  a fix on anything. The line of life, 
the limb of a tree

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
  The hands of he and the promise that 
she is blessed

Em   D     Em        A   Em
   Oh God I feel for you
   among women
